Nikolina Nikoleski was born in Zagreb, Croatia. Her passionate interest towards expressive movements and music drew her to dance early in her life. At the age of four she trained rhythmic gymnastics and developed her dance technique through various dance styles. She studied classical ballet, folk dances and graduated in Laban’s contemporary dance style from the High School for Dance and rhythmic in Zagreb, Croatia. After graduation, she moved to Austria in order to join the Salzburg Experimental Academy of Dance (www.sead.at). The principal of the Academy is Susan Quinn, for many years - a solo dancer of great Merce Cunningham Dance Company, USA.

A year later she was accepted at the world-famous Dance Academy – the Folkwang Hochschule in Essen in Germany, which is the one of the main world centres of contemporary dance (www.folkwang-hochschule.de). This Academy was also the art-cradle of some of the world’s greatest choreographers such as Pina Bausch, Susane Linke, Joachim Schloemer and others. Soon after joining, Nikolina was awarded with two scholarships – one from the board of FHS Essen and the other from the Cologne Art Foundation. While studying the modern dance, Nikolina also performed in many dance festivals and competitions of France, Austria, Africa, Spain, Germany, and Croatia.

After graduation at Folkwang Hochschule in Essen, Nikolina moved to India.. Her studies began in Kerala, under the Dhananjayans - famous students of legendary Rukmini Devi of Kalaksetra (www.bharatakalaanjali.org).
